What people say

Definitely my calm amidst the storm of life. I don’t need to do anything other than walk in the grounds (and breathe) to know that every storm runs out of energy eventually… absolutely could not have got myself through the past 12 months without regular visits.


A very special place to come and re charge. Amazing grounds, people and fantastic food served like clock work. Massive thanks to all the residents and working visitors for making my stay so enjoyable.
